Treotham presents the CES-C07 safety switches from Euchner, designed to supplement
the frequently used option of connecting sensors in series by adding much more
comprehensive diagnostics. The devices provide process-relevant parameters in
real time, thereby guaranteeing information for preventive maintenance. The
sensors measure relevant parameters in the surroundings to indicate problems
before machine failure can occur. This system can even detect tampering
When safety module ESM-CB is used, this information is polled
automatically from each switch in the chain and provided to the control system
via IO-Link. In addition to featuring functions such as weak-range indication, highly
visible display LEDs, and a safety classification in category 4 / PL e, the
switch can also be approached from three directions, allowing it to be mounted
in different positions.
The standard M12 plug integrated directly into the switch permits
connection using standard M12 cables. Another benefit is the option of
incorporating mechanical safety switches in the series connection of CES
Measuring only 18mm in width, the slimline safety module ESM-CB is
multifunctional as it combines an evaluation unit, safety relay and IO-Link
device in a single unit, offering everything you need to secure a small
You can connect two safety circuits to the inputs: one with which the
device can monitor an emergency-stop chain or the switching contacts of
mechanical safety switches; and the other for evaluating a switch chain
comprising the new safety switches CES-C07. Two redundant, safe relay contacts
enable the direct switching of loads up to 6 A mps.
The safety module is in a constant dialogue with the connected devices,
polling each sensor for information including the system state, ambient
conditions, and sensor data such as the sensor type and version number,
allowing you to communicate at Industry 4.0 level.
